Large Bronze Buddha, Thailand or Laos, 19th c.

Large bronze Buddha in the gesture of absence of fear, of protection "abhaya-mùdra", the right hand raised palm turned outwards. The fingers are stretched upwards. This gesture evokes the episode where the Buddha was attacked by an elephant (intoxicated by Devadatta, the bad cousin who wanted to assassinate him) in the streets of Ràjagrha. The elephant, arrived in front of the Master, was subjugated by his serenity and stopped and knelt before him to pay him homage.
Northern Thailand or Laos, 19th century, perhaps earlier.
The whole must have been lacquered and probably gilt (traces in the hair).
Beautiful overall effect, the left earlobe is missing.
Height : 1,75m at the flame.
